Trey joined IDT in 1994, while earning his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at the University of Iowa. He initially served as a Production Scientist, but his career wove through the hallways, labs and offices of IDT, allowing him to acquire extensive experience in most functional units of the company, including engineering, process automation, chemistry, genomics applications, facilities design, construction, commercial real estate, M&A, IR and executive finance.

Trey was appointed Chief Operating Officer in 2006. His responsibilities as COO included oversight of global operations, process development, strategic planning, BoD reporting, customer service, sales, strategic partnerships, and corporate representation for our Founder.
